MANILA, 2015: The show that set Seoul on fire is finally coming to Manila! COOKIN’ NANTA will be playing for a limited season at The Theatre at Solaire from November 10 – 15, 2015.

Unlike traditional performances, NANTA is performed with sounds and movement instead of dialogue. Language barriers are collapsed, allowing NANTA to move past the cultural differences and break through to the global market. “Samulnori”, the traditional rhythm and beats of Korea, is globally acknowledged for its uniqueness. NANTA combines tradition with modern music to create a unique but familiar sound to the international audience. NANTA stands out from other non-verbal performances by combining a storyline with various comical scenes in a kitchen. By adhering to its storyline, NANTA manages to excite the audience without using any verbal scripts.

“High energy experience with infectious rhythms.”

The Guardian

NANTA opens with three cooks—KO CHANG HWAN who plays Head Chef, JEONG BO RAM who plays Hot Sauce, and CHANG KYOUNG SOO who plays Sexy Guy—about to start their day. As they go through the preparations of their kitchen work, The Manager, HWANG YO HAN, shows up and barrages them with menus in preparation for an unplanned wedding party! On top of this surprise, he brings his reckless troublemaker Nephew, played by NAM DONG HOON, with him and demands the cooks to teach him how to cook. With only one hour left before the party, will they complete the preparation in time? With exciting beats, infectious humor, and a love story to boot, COOKIN’ NANTA is a definite must-see!

To date, NANTA has been performed 31,580 times, drawing a total of 10,153,999 audiences (85% of the audience is tourists from Japan, China, Southeast Asia, America, etc.). The total vegetable consumption is approximately 315,800 cucumbers, 126,320 onions, 315,800 carrots, and 221,060 cabbages. The total knife and cutting board consumption: approximately 18,975 knives and 2,070 cutting boards.

Unlike traditional performances, NANTA is performed with sounds and movement instead of dialogue. As a result, language barriers are collapsed, allowing NANTA to escape the cultural differences and perpetrate the global market. The traditional rhythm and beats of Korea are globally acknowledged for its uniqueness. NANTA combines these rhythm and beats with modern music to create a unique but familiar sound to the international audience. As a special mixture between Korean traditional rhythm and the modern audio system, NANTA became a super-rookie in the world culture market.

Many non-verbal performances are considered dull due to the repetitive rhythms and beats and lack of excitement. NANTA overcomes this drawback by combining a storyline with various comical scenes in a kitchen. By adhering to its storyline, NANTA manages to excite the audience without using any verbal scripts. Unlike other performances in which the audience just simply watch the performance, all of the audience can participate in the show. Spectators can become the bride and groom in a traditional Korean wedding ceremony, compete in a dumpling challenge, and interact with the performers to make a unified rhythm. The audience participation doubles up the fun. This is a unique but charming point, which only belongs to NANTA.

“Western humor with Oriental dance, percussion and acrobatics. This show really cooks.”

The Daily Mail

NANTA became the first Asian musical to debut on Broadway in September 2003 at the NEW VICTORY THEATRE on 45nd Ave., New York. Just 6 months after its Broadway debut, NANTA became the first Asian musical to be staged as a regular show, appearing at the MINETTA LANE THEATRE taking rank with all the famous worldwide performances.

NANTA on Broadway ended its run on August 7, 2005 after one and half years. This productive and edifying experience served as a launching pad for the show’s worldwide success. After that, NANTA toured in more than 250 countries, and NANTA continues to touch the hearts of the audience all over the world.

What is so exciting to this four Korean performer is the full of energy they have, even if you don’t understand what they saying or gesture you will amaze to their moves.

During the QnA after they perform on stage there was a questioned that what will they do to the vegetable? The head chef answered that ; back in Korea they will send it to feed the animals, but here in Manila definitely it will be a different connotation about it and it’s SAYANG!! Again it’s part of their performance to show.

cooki’n NANTA is here to share their tradition in Korea, this is also to give joy to all the Korean’s are here in the Philippines and maybe remind them the traditional korean way of living.

I enjoyed watching them to this press conference held at K-Pub The Forth Strip, also I enjoyed K-Pub Korean food.

SEE YOU ALL at SOLAIRE for the cooki’n NANTA
